Spray painted Kettle DIY

Spray painted Kettle

I am a green tea junkie.   Did you know that to brew the perfect cup of green tea, the water should be at 80-85 degrees F?  My kettle is temperature controlled, so I can brew the perfect cup. My stainless steel kettle just didn’t match my kitchen décor (and to purchase a high end coloured one wasn’t an option!), so I thought…I’m going to paint mine! I searched for a spray paint that would hold up to heat. I used Premier Spray paint from Canadian Tire in Candy Pop Satin (my fave colour) Now it isn’t supposed to be used on anything that will get hotter than 100 degrees. Because I only turn my kettle to 85 degrees at the most, I thought I would give it a try. (my kettle does get turned up higher when my kids come home, and they use it to make hot chocolate)

I cleaned the kettle off really well to remove any grease, etc.  Then I started taping off anything I didn’t want pink! (I used painters tape)  This was the longest part of the whole process. I taped a small area on the outside of the spout of the kettle, so that when I poured the water out, it wouldn’t touch the paint.
(use in a well ventilated area, I did this in my basement because I did this in the winter and I wanted it done YESTERDAY)

It only took 2 coats and I just love how it turned out!.
I have been using my kettle daily and it has held up just fine!!  (it smelled like paint the first week, when it heated up, but now it has no smell whatsoever)

  Please let me know if you paint your kettle, or toaster, or blender!! The possibilities are endless!

    Hello. The paint on my white SMEG kettle has started to flake around the lid and I was looking to paint it. I was wondering how your kettle held up after you painted it?

    1. Tracey says:

      It has held up great!!!

  7. Hi Tracey, how is the paint holding up over time? I’m looking to do a similar thing as a gift but I’m worried the paint will flake off due to the hot/cold cycles.

      Hi! The paint has held up really well!! It hasn’t flaked off at all!
